Watch what you say. Don’t say bad things. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. Bring back memories from your past? But is there any history behind these words of wisdom.
In the book “Hidden Messages in Water” by Masaru Emoto, they placed a word on a piece of paper and put it around a bottle of water. “Water exposed to the words “thank you” formed beautiful geometric crystals, no matter what the language. But water exposed to “you fool” and other degrading words resulted in obviously broken and deformed crystals.” Amazing work to prove how words impact the water. And humans are made up mostly of water!
While the water experiment provides proof, here is a more personal experiment that you can try at home to help you actually see this effect. Take 2 plants that are the same. Give them the same amount of water, food, and light. Place them at minimum 1 foot apart. Each day speak to each plant. One plant say “I hate you” about 5 times. To the other plant say “I love you” about 5 times. that is the ONLY difference between how you treat each plant. Make sure when you speak to each plant that you speaking in a direction that does not affect the other plant. The results will amaze you and should help you see the impact clearly.
So what are your words bringing into your life?
